Baby Gauri Bhosle was born on September 4, 2011 with an abnormal hole in the septum that separates the two bottom chambers of the heart called ventricles. The defect is known as Ventricular Septal Defect (VSD). This was diagnosed at the second month itself but the doctors advised to wait till baby turns one year as there is a chance that the hole fills up by itself. But latest test reports show that the hole is still not fully filled and little Gauri needs an open heart surgery.
Her parents are farm workers and they are a very poor couple who struggle to make both ends meet.
Doctors of Sahyadri Specialty Hospital, Pune suggested to get the open heart surgery done not later than December 10, 2012. Approximate cost of Surgery is Rs 2.25 Lakhs. The parents are trying all the means to raise the money to save their little daughter.
